From the scacoasts and the 
mountains, from cities and 

farms, came sailors, soldiers, 

college youths and high school boys. 
Rich or poor, scholar or 
neophyte, service or civilian, 

all started the same. 

The flay of our initiation 
into the fraternity of men n ho 

follow the sea had arrived.

They say this son of a Scottish 
gardener was unfit for command 
because of his violent temper, but 
John Paul Jones rose by his own capa- 
bilities to become a captain in the 
British merchant service. In 1777 he 
offered himself to the new Conti- 
nental Navy, and in the years that 
followed, by precept and example, 
laid the foundation of American Naval 
tradition. He died in Paris but now 
rests in the Crypt beneath the Naval 
Academy Chapel.

John Adolphus Dahlgren entered 
the Navy in 1826. He obtained 
some notoriety for praising the de- 
spised hollow shot and harping on the 
need of fire control, and, in 1847, he 
was ordered to Washington for ord- 
nance work. He founded what has 
become the Naval Gun Factory and 
revolutionized gun construction and, 
through it, ship construction. Two 
monuments to this officer-scientist are 
the Navy's great proving-ground at 
Dahlgren, Virginia, and Dahlgren 
Hall, at the Naval Academy.

Education was the life of George 
Bancroft. Graduating from Har- 
vard at sixteen, he was sent abroad to 
study with the best minds of Europe. 
As Secretary of the Navy under Presi- 
dent Polk, he planned and established 
the United States Naval Academy. 
His History of the United States became 
a final authority, and his own poetry, 
Greek and Latin translations, enjoyed 
equal success. George Bancroft and 
American education walked hand in 
hand through the nineteenth century.

4ured Thayer Mahan, the son 
-^*- of a West Point Instructor, 
graduated from the Naval Academy 
in 1856 and, in 1885, was called by 
Admiral Luce to teach strategy, tac- 
tics and Naval history in the newly 
founded Naval War College. Inter- 
nationally praised, his Influence of Sea 
Power Upon History and subsequent 
works became required reading in 
practically every navy in the world. 
His research lifted naval warfare to 
the status of an exact science. 



Years of planning, months of 
waiting, hours of hoping — 
and a new way of life was opened unto 

us. A life for which we would 

give up many of the 
accoutrements of living that 

we had once cherished. First 
they took our pulse, then our 

money, next our hair, and finally 
our clothes. At last, we each 

became Midshipman Gish 4/c.

Amid signs admonishing us to "Do It Right the First 
Time," we did it over and over and again and again ... so 
it seemed. From the day during second class year when 
requests for bids on engraving and printing contracts are made 
until Graduation Day, the LUCKY BAG is a headache of 
gigantic proportions to its editor. Biographies provided the 
first big obstacle. Nobody could understand why or how he 
could write the history of a wife's stay at USNA with only 
half the four years completed.

stage of Second Class Year, it seemed that the days were not 
twenty-four hours long, but twenty-four hours too short.

1 he Naval Academy Choir, under the direction of Pro- 
fessor Donald C. Gilley, is one of the outstanding musical 
organizations of the Navy. In addition to leading the musical 
worship at the weekh chapel service, the choir also makes 
several trips away from the Academy. Outstanding among 
these trips is the annual trip to the National Cathedral in 

\\ ashington, D. C.

One of the choir's yearly highlights is the 
annual production of Landel's "'Messiah, 
in which the group joins with one of the 
choirs from a nearby women's college. I he 
"Messiah" entails inan\ long hours of prac- 
tice in order thai the performances ma\ 
attain the necessarilx high standards. So 
that the two choirs maj become accustomed 
to singing as a unit, the men in the choir 
travel to the cooperating women's college 
for a rehearsal, and I he women return the 
compliment. Thefirsl \cadem\ "Messiah 
was presented in 1947. Since then it has 
been ever growing in excellence and popu- 
larity. Two performances are generally 
given on the weekend of the ( 'hrist mas I op. 
The greal number of people present is a 
measure of the success of the production and 
a reward for the efforts required to bring 
this masterpiece to the Vcademj .

1 he revitalized "N" Club is one more reason for the sudden 
upsurge of Navy's athletic success in recent months. Mem-

the winning of a varsity "N." Each weekend club officers 
escort promising high school athletes through the Academy 
grounds, thus hoping to interest them in the Naval Academy 
as a school and the Navy as a career. The club also offers 
some inducement to strive for a letter by holding several 
dinner-dances in the Hubbard Hall clubroom each year. The 
clubroom television sets and coke bars are open the year round 
while June Week brings the impressive awards ceremony and 
the cherished open air "N Dance."

lo most midshipmen, the name Trident is synonymous with 
the Trident Magazine. Though the Trident Society encom-

seemed insurmountable, hut the idea of an entirely new. 
though perhaps smaller publication, to supplemenl the bi- 
weekly LOG was hil up<.u: a SPLINTER off the old LOG.

A comparatively recent addition to our circle of musical 
organizations, the Marching Band, conceived only three years 
ago, has skyrocketed to the top. Its spectacular football 
game performances have brought national honors to the 

Members of the Marching Band double in the long-estab- 
lished Midshipmen's Concert Band. Not exactly a long-hair 
outfit, they give at least one concert each year.

xIjach year the Drama Club, or "Masqueraders" as it i> 
more commonly known, presents a stage show in Ylaharj 
Auditorium. This year's production was "The Silver Whis- 
tle," starring Hank Nix and Bob ELalisch. Comedy is at its 
best when these amateur Eddie Foys take to the grease paint 
and colored lights. Even budding Carol Channings are in 
evidence, though every actor is a midshipman. Bancroft 
residents also provide the props, make-up, and electrical dis- 
plays for the show. A truly all-midshipman outfit, our mask 
and shears friends help make the Dark Ages bearable.

INavy opened its gridiron season against Maryland in their 
first meeting since 1934. The middies fought hard, and the 
Maryland boys knew they had played a ball game when it 
was all over. Behind, 21-0, at the half, our boys bounced back 
to outscore the Terps in the second half, but it wasn't enough 
to overcome the deficit. The final score was 35-21. 

The next game found us on the short end of a 22-0 score 
suffered at the hands of Northwestern. Our inexperienced 
youngsters were beginning to come around. 1ml the wildcats, 
led liy Don Sloiicsil'er and Rich Athan, were just a little loo

Princeton, which later was awarded the Lambert Trophy 
for football supremacy in the East, barely escaped us in our 
next encounter. We led at the half, 14-7, but the Tigers, led 
by Jack Davison, who set up and scored the winning touch- 
down, were able to squeeze by, 20-14. Bill Powers was the 
Navy standout, with his 55-yard punt, return setting up the 
middies' second score. 

Our boys jumped in the win column the following week 
with a convincing 27-14 win over So. California. Most of the 
credit for the victory was conceded to the line men. Zastrow 
and Drew stood out, Zug scoring twice while Rog kicked two 
field goals.

Although registering 21 first downs to Penn's 4, the 
middies dropped the game, 30-7, before 60,000 fans at Franklin 
Field. We were able to do just about everything but cross 
the Quaker's goal. Frank Hauff scored our lone marker.

line was made up entirely of veterans with such regulars as

Whitaker at end, playing their third and last year for Navy. 

The defensive team was stronger than ever, and also 
made up entirely of veterans. Paul Martin and Don Knutson, 
the punter and extra-point specialist, respectively, also turned 
in good records for their last season with the 150's. 

Coach Busse's boys will be hurt by graduation losses, but 
there will be plenty of talent from the youngsters and second 
class with which to rebuild the team.

Despite his relatively inexperienced team, Coach Glenn 
Warner taught his boys entirely new tactics for the 1950 
season. Discarding the characteristic American man-for-man 
play, the Navy hooters left the defense work to the two full- 
backs and the center full, which left the rest of the team \ er\ 
much on the offensive. The soccer schedule easily matched

With a new coach and with a squad which was predomi- 
nantly Youngster, this was a year of building for the swimmers. 
Coach John Higgins, former All-American and Olympic star 
at Ohio State, led the Nators to five wins in their first six starts 
as they lost only to mighty Yale, the nation's best. The next 
three meets were all on the road and the swimmers ran into 
tough sledding as Dartmouth, Harvard, and Rutgers won in 
their home pools. The hoys worked tirelessly in tin- \ala- 
torium to prepare for the \rm\ meet and lost out h\ a narrow 
live-point margin, 40-35. 

Captain Boots Johnson was the outstanding performer 
and was undefeated in dual competition, lie set a new Pool 
record for the 200-yard backstroke; time 2:1 7. o and a new 
Naval Academy record of 2:17.4 al Wesl Point.

l\ facing the besl competition in the East, the \a\\ team 
proved its mettle on the intercollegiate mat once again. 
Coaches Ray Swartz and Curl Kin were the guiding lights 
during those hours of practicing to develop speed and decep- 
tion, insi\ nothing of all importanl conditioning, which paid 
off in a 6-2 record. 

Willi wins over Washington ami Lee, Maryland, North 
Carolina, Princeton, Cornell, and the I oiversit} of Virginia, 
the team lost only to Rutgers and Perm State. 

Don Thomas, undefeated at L65 pounds, went on to 
compete in the Easterns and 1C1A championships. First 
classmen Nell", wrestling in the 130-pound class, Hollowa} at 
157. Thompson, a 175-pounder, and Hunt, in the heavyweighl 
division, performed notably in this their last year of compe- 

Captain Bob Sutley. Gregory, Evans. Scolpino. Wise,

other enviable record for Navy wrestling.

T-Ighlighted by a spectacular 15-12 win over the Columbia 
Lions the team had a very successful season. Returning 
veterans Paul Utterback, Harris Wood, Sandy Winnefeld and 
captain Jerry Stuart, teamed with newcomers Zimolzak, Lykes, 
Pardee. Smith and Gorski to give Coach Fiems the strength 
he needed to fashion those winning margins. 

With a second (cam almost at a par with the first the 
regulars were kepi on their toes by regularly scheduled fence- 
oil's. The foil team showed vast iinpro\ einent this year. 
Kpee. Navy's traditionally strong weapon, lived up to expec- 
tations with veteran Paul I tterhaels pointing the way. Al- 
though a slow starter the sabre squad came through when the 
points were inosi needed.

1 he Squash season ended with Navy's team boasting one 
of the best competitive records in years. From the seven 
scheduled intercollegiate matches, the racquetmen scored 
successive victories over their first five opponents and ended 
their season by dropping close decisions to Yale and Army. 

The team was sparked this year by the outstanding play- 
ing of team captain Don Haynsworth, Hank Goelzer, John 
McGavack, Phil Pahl, and Jim Organ. 

Through the efforts of Admiral H. W. Hill, the Academy 
acquired twelve new squash courts that were sorely needed to 
meet the demand brought about by the sport's ever-increasing 

Ably and energetically coaching the team, Lcdr. Potter, 
more than any other single person, was responsible for this 
year's successful season.

Harvey, Tom, Walter . . . came 
straight from Kentucky . . . thinks 
nothing can beat Kentucky's whiskey, 
girls, or basketball teams . . . always 
has a big grin on his face . . . never 
known to worry . . . liked by all who 
know him ... he always manages to 
find a sarcastic answer for anything and 
everything but it's always in fun . . . 
spent most of his liberty hours draped 
over the counter of the local record shop 
buying "Bop" or anything fast . . . 
nobody ever saw him bothered by the 
system ... he didn't let it worry him 
... in spite of his independent attitude 
he spent very little time on the execu- 
tive "Track team" ... a really swell 
person . . . the Academy can be proud 
of this product.

Quivering Jim, there's been some mis- 
take! How did Ghandi get into a sailor 
suit? . . . there are two places to look 
if you want to find old Bones ... on 
the sun ramp or in his sack . . . study? 
. . . he's forgotten how since he left the 
University of California ... an "jNr" 
who has hundreds of friends and a per- 
sonality that comes out and slaps you 
in the face . . . his taste for music 
ranges from the weird to the classic, 
but the opera has first spot tagged and 
put away . . . joyfully non-athletic, de- 
pends only upon swimming to raise his 
P.T. mark . . . resents a touch on his 
vulnerable spot, the nose, but aspires to 
greater heights as replacement for the 
Macedonian Monument.

Carolina Beach, North Carolina 

Spending the formative years on the 
seashore exposed to the tales of the 
fisherman and to the ocean tends to bend 
one to a life on the sea ... it did just 
that for Sporty . . . spent a year as an 
enlisted man and entered U.S.N. A. via 
N.A.P.S. at Bainbridge, Md. . . . hav- 
ing five older brothers subjects one to 
much rough and tumble and it was 
through this that Sporty found football 
. . . living on the seashore caused his 
favorite pastimes to come out . . . fish- 
ing, sailing, sunbathing, swimming and 
dancing . . . always ready for a good 
time, he has been known to tell a joke, 
and look at a woman ... he got his 
nickname as a result of his terrible 
memory ... he calls everybody 
"Sporty" so he won't have to remember 
their names.

Arlington, Virginia 

George was born in Philadelphia but he 
left the Quaker City at the age of two 
. . . after much traveling around he ar- 
rived home in time to attend high school 
... his only claims to fame during high 
school are being the editor of his school 
paper and playing a little baseball . . . 
being a Navy Junior, George decided 
upon a naval career after high school 
. . . took up wrestling at the academy 
after finding that baseball was too 
rough . . . was called the "Hook" be- 
cause of his devious means of working 
some math probs ... he intends to 
follow the career of a line officer after 
graduation . . . and will undoubtedly 
pursue a long and successful one.

One of those good-looking prospective 
Gyrenes . . . his wavy flaring-red mop 
lights the way . . . had aspirations for 
Air Corps but 'tain't room in those 
fighters for seeing eye dogs . . . strict 
disciplinarian . . . must have read his reg 
book plebe summer . . . the terror of the 
steward's mates . . . stows away more 
chow than the proverbial hound . . . 
the only firstie to ignore three bells com- 
pletely and consistently . . . one of the 
shy type . . . blushes till his hair looks 
pale . . . seems to have a mutual at- 
traction for the ladies though ... al- 
most a math slash . . . studies dili- 
gently ... no grey hair over grades 
. . . will go far with his silent, ardent 
zeal for doing the best possible.

Greenwood, South Carolina 

A long way from "You All" land . . . 
South Carolina to be exact . . . Jim 
spent a year at the Citadel in Charleston, 
S. C. before coming to the Academy . . . 
maybe that's why he gets this Navy 
stuff . . . where studies are concerned 
Jim is always near the top . . . but 
maybe that's because of the inspiration

And then there's Dan Jones . . . we 
call him "Danny" . . . can best de- 
scribe him by quoting his own words 
. . . "You can't blame a guy for trying 
to get ahead" ... he participates 
wholeheartedly in everything . . . if it's 
a dance, he's dancing ... a task, he's 
working ... a joke, he's laughing . . . 
his desires are plain and simple enough: 
wine, women and song, but the song is 
slightly diversified to cater to the Latins 
... he throws a mean Samba, Bhumba, 
and, you name it, he'll try it . . . when 
Dan enters the fleet, the skipper can 
rest assured that he's received the top 
"top exponent" from Georgia and the 
Naval Academy.

Irish from the toes up, Kelly of the Bed 
Hair and Green Eyes is famous for for- 
mulating that important law of sociology, 
to wit, "The beer always gets drunk be- 
fore the drinker does" ... a true 
southern gentleman, his accents mild 
have seared the ears of those few un- 
fortunate plebes who dared to arouse 
that temper which is as fiery but not as 
obvious as his bright hair ... a hard 
man to go against in a give-and-take 
verbal battle, but one who has the 
rare ability to down an opponent with- 
out insulting him ... an iron deter- 
mination, a fighting heart, and a will to 
forge ahead, all personify this best of 
the good little men.

to the Academy from the hills of North 
Carolina ... he left his home town 
college and expanded his never dim-

words of encouragement served to help 
many lift their spirit from depression

Drum and Bugle Corps, Carr*s love of 
good music has been a source of enter- 
tainment and relaxation for him . . . 
he has the qualities of a forceful public 
speaker and will find a lot of practical

works very hard to achieve his aims with 
finesse . . . reliable, friendly, and evenly 
dispositioned, Carr spends a large part

Robbie : the only man to come to Navy 
who could do the required twenty-four 
hours daily work in the alloted sixteen 
hours . . . the "literary type"? ... he 
isn't happy reading what someone else 
writes ... he has to write his own, 
correct his own, and publish his own 
... he would print his own too if he 
would get the requisition for the print 
approved . . . coming to Navy straight 
from high school ... he continued to 
make an enviable academic record in 
spite of no college training . . . though 
no great athlete in any one field, quite 
adaptable to all sports . . . tennis, hand- 
ball, squash, and sailing . . . also cross

capable of satisfactorily completing any- 
thing he starts out to do.

When Dave put away the tractor and 
bailing machine and took up the slide 
rule, he brought more to the Academy 
than the good nature that only an Illi- 
nois farmer can possess ... to the 
"formula plugging" Academy he brought 
an abundance of horse sense . . . 
amazed the profs by forgetting their indis- 
pensable formulas and simply reasoning 
the problems out . . . not an athlete of 
great abilities . . . but surprised his 
classmates on the obstacle course and 
in the strength test . . . Dave drags 
quite often but believes women are like 
inside plumbing . . . nice to have around 
but not necessary ... at least not at 
the present ... he will undoubtedly 
enjoy a long and successful service

Fitz, as we all know him, possesses im- 
measurable capabilities . . . probably 
his greatest asset is his Irish tempera- 
ment which gives him the will to win 
and the fire to go on under the most 
strenuous conditions . . . Fitz has been 
an outstanding figure around the Naval 
Academy both on and off the athletic 
fields ... he more than excels in all his 
undertakings and when called on for a 
decision he uses a great amount of initia- 
tive and common sense . . . well liked 
and admired by all, we feel that we have, 
in Fitz, a man who will uphold and ad- 
vance the traditions of the Navy and 
be a great representative of the Class of 
1951 in whichever service he enters.

Some people say that the biggest step 
down in the career of a naval officer is 
from first classman to ensign, but Fred, 
coming to us from Admiral Farragut 
Academy, where he held the rank of six- 
striper, should be able to take this one 
without a strain ... in the four year 
rat-race with the academic department, 
he didn't know who was going to win 
until the last gun was fired . . . most of 
his time was taken up with varsity foot- 
ball and wrestling . . . still found time 
to gather quite a collection of semi- 
classical records ... he could be found 
in any leisure hour between Albrights

Fitchburg, Massachusetts 

Naval life was nothing novel to Ray 
when he entered here in June of 1947 
. . . not only did he have the distinc- 
tion of holding an ensign's commission 
in the Naval Reserve by way of having 
graduated from the Massachusetts Mari- 
time Academy but he also is descended 
from a long line of seafaring folk . . . 
namely the Finns ... he came to this 
country at the age of 4, leaving his 
native birthplace Poytya, Finland, and 
settled in the heart of the seafaring state 
of Massachusetts . . . while at the 
Naval Academy, aside from his many 
dragging week-ends, each spring and fall 
has found him faithfully acting as man- 
ager of the Varsity soccer team.

Pete Hughes is a product of Indiana and 
the windy city of Chicago ... he ar- 
rived at the Academy via the fabled 
route of NAPS . . . though not an 
inveterate dragger, liberty always finds 
him where there's plenty of wine, women 
and song . . . when not beating a drum 
for the Hellcats with a bird on his 
shoulder, he could usually be found sail- 
ing on the bay . . . although he says 
he knows the E.D. course blindfolded, 
he's the only man known to have been 
caught by the noted "Key" with a loaded 
water pistol without ending up on the 
pap for articles, unauthorized . . . Pe- 
toire will long be remembered for his 
ability to get into hideous situations 
and come out smiling.

Known as "Swede" to his classmates, 

1'nili came In \a\ \ from NAPS . . . 
previous to that, he was in the \rm\ for 
several months . . . Bob comes from 
Sherman, V Y. and. since Second Class 
leave, claims it to be the besl home town 
to be found . . . not the brightest bo\ 
around, Swede does manage to hit the 
books once in a while, but it is more often 
that he hits his sack . . . Bob is an 
outstanding athlete in his own right . . . 
athletics are his main interest and he 
holds his own in track and basketball 
. . . however, when the weekend rolls 
around, sports are shoved aside in favor 
of roaming the streets of Annapolis 
. . . Swede hopes to enter Naval Avia- 
tion and will surely be a success if he 
jets it. . . .

Toledo, Ohio 
After a year of gay, carefree college life 
at Villanova and an even more carefree 
hitch in the Navy, Paul came to the 
Admiral Factory by means of a fleet 
appointment . . . always ready to sit 
down to a bull session or to formulate 
plans for some future party . . . his 
extracurricular activities were along a 
literary vein, using the LOG and the 
Public Relations Committee as an outlet 
... in almost ritualistic fashion he went 
to work on his tennis, golf, and bridge 
games each spring so as not to be shown 
up by some femme . . . despite all the 
propaganda for the different services he 
remains true to the "surface-skimming 
Navy". . . . 

Corning, New York 

"Gus," as John is best known, was born 
in New Jersey . . . the second of a 
large family of Irishmen, so he says . . . 
moved North to Corning, New York, 
soon after making his debut . . . gradu- 
ated from high school in 1946 . . . then 
went off to St. Bonadventure's for a year 
before boarding the train for Annapolis 
. . . considered to be of average mental 
and physical qualifications . . . does 
rate some distinction, though . . . he's 
better than average at the table . . . 
isn't too particular as far as likes and dis- 
likes are concerned . . . looks forward 
to a commission in the Marines . . . 
but would be satisfied with a gold stripe 
and star on his sleeve. . . . 

Chicago, Illinois 

Hirst, better known as "Ted," originated 
in Robertsdale, Alabama . . . was 
transplanted to the Windy City . . . 
now claims Chicago as his own . . .fin- 
ished high school in California . . . 
joined the Navy after graduation . . . 
spent eleven months as an enlisted man 
. . . he then entered the Halls of 
Bancroft on a fleet appointment . . . 
while at Navy Tech he developed a 
deep love for soccer . . . also became 
very angry at the department of foreign 
languages . . . they didn't think that 
he knew enough German to pass . . . 
the next year he took Portuguese . . . 
studies didn't come too easy and a lot 
of time was spent plugging at the books 
. . . lots of persistence and tenacity 
. . . he still is in the Navy and probably 
will stay in the Navy ... he has his 
heart set on getting a pair of Navy 
wings. . . .

Jamaica, New York 

Another one of Long Island's pride and 
joys . . . Bill came to Navy from 
Brooklyn Tech, where he acquired most 
of his perfectionist qualities ... he is 
well known throughout the company for 
his many talents and accomplishments 
. . . during football season he is con- 
stantly designing posters for untalented 
plebes . . . his drawer contains any 
type of tool, gear, or implement that is 
necessary for survival in Bancroft Hall 
. . . anybody who needs change for a 
phone call always knows who has a 
supply of nickels handy ... in the 
Academic field, it can never be said that 
Bill is one who stays up late at night 
worrying about the next day's work . . . 
however, as proof of his keen intelligence, 
you can see him wearing stars on very 
spcciiil occasions . . . all of his many 
friends wisli him the best of luck in his 
naval career. . . . 

Quonset Point, Bhode Island 

A Navy junior . . . his father is of the 
class of 1926 ... a fact which fre- 
quently crops up in conversation . . . 
hopes to carry on the family tradition 
. . . engaged in continuous warfare with 
the Academic Departments and to the 
surprise of many of his classmates always 
emerged the victor . . . his ability to 
get out of tight spots is almost a legend 
. . . quiet and unassuming . . . friendly 
. . . easy to get along with . . . his 
obvious love for the Navy will take him 
a long way in his career . . . would like 
submarines but his eyes may hold him 
back . . . however, any branch of the 
service could be proud to have him num- 
bered anion t>- them. . . . 

New Kensington, Pennsylvania 

Just call him Bay, Les, or even Harry 
. . . easy to please . . . star basketeer 
and baseballer back on the varsities of 
Ken High and Grove City College, but 
has developed a strong attachment for 
Navy's radiators . . . leaves 'em long 
enough to spark company basketball 
. . . expert harrier . . . four-year letter- 
man in company cross-country . . . 
could win every time if he wasn't so 
sociable with the tail-enders . . . ready 
with a smile any time he can be torn 
away from the Daily Dispatch ... but 
very serious and diligent when it comes 
to cracking books . . . loves to doodle 
on anything handy ... a Bed Mike if 
ever there were one . . . ardently de- 
sires to flaunt Davy Jones from a sub- 
marine . . . Bay knows how to give 
the most to and get the most out of life 
... a sure-fire top notcher in any field. 

Ocean City, New Jersey 

Hailing from Ocean City, New Jersey, 
heart of the mosquito country, "Les" 
got his first taste of Navy life as a V-5 
student at the University of Pennsyl- 
vania ... at the Academy he found 
that eating and studying occupied most 
of his time . . . his claim of not know- 
ing any women was a standing joke, 
renewed each weekend when he appeared 
with a different one . . . his defense 
was that it wasn't a good policy to drag 
the same gal twice . . . aviation is his 
main interest at present and unless the 
books make him Supply Corps material 
he hopes to become a part of the U. S. 
Air Force upon graduation. . . .

Chicago, Illinois 

"'Next weekend it's going to be different. 
I'll study hard next weekend, and . . . 
Liberty? . . . Let's go!" . . . always 
Teady to go for a good time . . . Jack 
came to us from the enlisted ranks via 
NAPS and a lot of prayer . . . his 
wives never could understand how one 
man could sleep as much during exam 
time as he did . . . "Have to stay 
loose, let's put out the lights and go to 
bed, we'll be fresh in the morning . . . 
and then we can sleep better" . . . has 
his heart set on the spray and wind on 
the bridge of a sleek destroyer . . .

Will is also at home in the boxing ring 
. . . his name is always among the top 
contenders for the Brigade crown . . . 
the bulk of his spare time is spent in 
the gym working out ... is an ardent 
follower of athletics ... he was nearly 
a casualty on Youngster Cruise when he 
fell into an empty void in the black of 
night . . . although he had no special 
O.A.O., his female acquaintances are 
many and he was seen dragging con- 
stantly . . . the fleet may well use this 
man of unusual leadership ability. . . .

With slide rule in hand . . . M.I.T. 
schooling in mind and a Beta pin on his

was justified ... a ten letterman in 
high school, the lad is, by first interest, 
an athlete ... a man's man . . . effi- 
cient, meticulous, strong in argumenta- 
tion . . . with the women? who else 
receives perfumed epistles from room- 
mates at local lovelies' schools? . . . 
Bob's shooting for the Air Corps . . . 
but, if his math wizardry keeps up he'll 
probably be a CEC man . . . with 
academics as his byword . . . Bob is 
headed for the top in any field he chooses.

Bipley, Ohio 

The pride of Bipley, a small town in 
Southern Ohio, is Boy . . . his fore- 
most exclamations are "I kid you not," 
and "But I just got out of high school." 
... it took a while for Boy to get 
started . . . his natural ability and in- 
telligence soon enabled him to surmount 
any academic obstacle ... for a long

Brooklyn, New York 

From the sandlots of Flatbush to the 
halls of Bancroft came Andy in the 
summer of '47 . . . one of those rare 
individuals who has hardly been changed 
in any way by the life at Navy Tech 
... he still knows baseball from cover 
to cover, and he still possesses a flam- 
boyant Brooklyn accent that he makes 
no effort to conceal . . . academics pre- 
sented no problem to his "learn by do- 
ing"' attitude . . . yet he still always 
found time to be that extra man in the 
afternoon or on a weekend who was 
needed to complete a team for some sort 
of sport's contest . . . whether it was 
football, basketball or Softball ... a 
marked individualist in many respects 
whose greatest asset is determination 
. . . this alone will make him a sure 
success in any branch of future life. 

Malden, Massachusetts

his wagon to a star and enter Navy 
Tech ... he spent four years trying 
to impress upon us the correct way to 
speak English . . . "I pahked my cab. 
in the Avahd yahd" . . . Dan seemed 
on his way to a gridiron career when a 
knee injury removed him from active 
playing . . . however, his interest has 
remained keen as anyone who has sat 
next to him at a game can attest . . . 
friends he has never lacked and whether 
he finds himself in New York or the far 
China station he will always be wel-

Bill read a book once and ever since his 
motto has been — "the navy is God and 
John Paul Jones his prophet" ... he 
hails from New York City but his heart 
is in New London and submarines . . . 
a year at Billard Naval School, another 
at Coast Guard Academy, and several 
years of scanning the East Biver have 
given him his call to the sea . . . always 
plugging to beat the academics at their 
own game and outfox the daily quiz 
. . . plebe year was a wrestle with the 
system . . . youngster cruise was a 
high point and a fond memory . . . 
we'll always remember Bill for his cheery 
smile and his outlook on the service . . . 
may the Navy prove all he expects it 
to be.

More worried about his bull grade than 
losing his stars, that's Ralph ... "I 
never did get that ole stuff" is his favor-

leaves in the Maine woods ... a neat 
dresser and constant critic of the laundry 
. . . hopes to fly a seaplane for the Navy

. . . has formed one noticeable habit 
since he entered Navy; every Tuesday

the Philadelphia Athletics are in the 
major league but gave up the Phillies. 
He will always be remembered for his 
affable manner and big smile.

Naval Aviation upon graduation . . . 
one of those fellows we hate to leave . . .

Beckley, West Virginia

life's so-o much easier . . . never stud- 
ied much until he got here . . . even 
then it didn't do lot of good . . . he

... lie got a start in music in high 
school but gave it up when he came to 
Navy . . . he's very interested in 
watching sports . . . just never could 
get the energy to work at them himself 
. . . although he was known as Jim at

about fifty other guys since his arrival 
at the academy. 

Port Washington, New York 

'Chetty boy" to his women, "Chet" to 
lis admirers, and ". . ." to his wives 
. . brain McDonough is a constant 
distracting force on his roommates who 
aave to study . . . Chet waits for his 
infallible messengers to come with the 
answers . . . these messengers have 
never yet visited anyone else, a fact 
proving disasterous to those who took 
his advice, didn't study, and simply 
waited with open mind . . . Chefs a 
woman hater, but the feeling's not mu- 
tual . . . Chet's been a star basket- 
bailer for Navy's '51 varsity for three 
years . . . also a star attack man on the 
lacrosse squad . . . Chet missed plebe 
summer, but he has been an outstanding 
member of our class nevertheless. 


Albany, New York 

After spending one year at college, Mac 
came to Navy the day we joined the 
Brigade . . . though the executive de- 
partment confused him with their regu- 
lations, the academic departments found 
an opponent who was completely at 
ease or. their battle grounds . . . letters 
to a certain Miss, known as Nancy, 
cross country, and Softball, occupied his 
spare time . . . through iron-willed de- 
termination he remained in our class 
after spending eighteen weeks in the 
hospital from an unfortunate accident 
on Camid ... a true friend and a 
brave comrade, he will uphold and carry 
on the traditions of the Navy in his 

flo-Jut *Wtctyavac&, fit. 

Leonia, New Jersey 

After a year at Hampden Sydney, Mac 
came to Navy with a tennis racquet 
where his right arm should have been

mainstay of the tennis team . . . Mac 
even found time during his leave periods 
to participate quite successfully in the 
Eastern Intercollegiate Tennis Cham- 
pionship . . . acquired his tennis skill 
in Leonia along with a certain fine young 
lady who answers to the name of Jinny 
. . . after plebe year, week-ends usually 
found Mac in close company with his 
O.A.O. ... in fact, when he wasn't 
getting ready for a week-end, he was 
recuperating from his last one. Well- 
liked, sincere, and amiable ... Old 
Scravack is destined to go far regardless 
of what the future holds for him.

stances ... he is constantly telling 
the wonders of the Wolverine state

Bob is always present with his sparkling 
wit . . . but prefers sparkling water 
. . . another one of the air minded 
... he hopes to receive his wings and 
ascend to the highest pinacle of success.

Lancaster, Pennsylvania 

Comes to us from NAPS ... a lover of 
airplanes from the smallest elastic-driven 
model to the largest jet-powered bomber 
. . . kept quite a gap between him and 
the clutches of the academic department

Chicago, Illinois 

Mac is well known throughout the Class 
of '51 ... a representative of Chicago 
. . . always ready for a good laugh or 
joke . . . easy-going . . . an inherently 
intelligent fellow who does not study 
until he has to . . . tripped over a few 
academics but maintained course (if not 
speed) . . . never took anything seriously 
until he met a certain Washingtonian 
beauty in the spring of youngster year 
. . . now takes dragging seriously . . . 
every weekend ... a marine from way 
back . . . served 4 years before enter- 
ing the academy . . . looks forward to 
getting back into "Forest Greens" . . . 
hates to be reminded of his gray hairs 
. . . also dislikes people who are always 
late . . . likes sleeping, eating, senti- 
mental music, and good times.

Another victory for Navy over Army

good things come in small packages 
... a hard worker ... if you are 
looking for him ... he is usually behind 
the old slip stick . . . "Might as well 
jump a few numbers . . . turn off the 
radio, let's study ..." appreciates his 
rest too . . . "Hold down the noise, 
can't you see I'm sleeping?" . . . his 
seaman's eye is looking for a queen, 
small size . . . enjoys a good time after 
the studying is done . . . always willing 
to help . . . friendly . . . frank, wants 
to be a sea-going officer . . . the fleet 
is getting a hard worker and a capable 
officer in little "Mac". . . .

What is it about Johnny ... is it his 
big, smiling, sincere brown eyes . . . 
his large size heart . . . his unruly hair 
. . . the fact that we would rather argue 
than eat . . . his unquestionably unique 
sense of values . . . his wonderfully 
rich heritage steeped with tales of the 
Labyrinth, Minotaur, and the Trojan 
Horse . . . or is it that chunk of Detroit 
and Crete he brought with him to the 
Naval Academy that makes him the 
refreshing and distinctly different person- 
ality which he is . . . intensely proud 
of his family name . . . quick to show 
his genuine friendliness . . . above all, 
you can count on John to stand up and 
fieht for the things in which he believes.

Jim, the pride of Long Island . . . well, 
a small part of it anyway . . . non- 
chalantly breezes through academics 
without taking much of a strain . . . 
would rather spend his time more profit- 
ably ... in the sack . . . when not 
there, he'll be at the golf course . . . 
tennis courts . . . Smoke Hall pool 
tables . . . movies . . . anywhere away 
from the books ... a firm believer that 
women are here to stay ... as long as 
they stay away from him . . . likes

Forces as a career . . . changed his

no blind drags from him ... all bricks. 

Brockport, New York 

Hates to write letters but can frequently 
be found struggling to perfect an epistle 
. . . perpetually in pursuit of a drag or 
a deal ... an ex-salt, he is a great teller 
of sea stories in his own right . . . hours 
on end when not in the sack ... he is al- 
ways trying to work off excess avoirdu- 
pois but only gains more . . . much to 
his chagrin . . . finds time for the art 
of pugilism . . . but finds too much 
time for the agility course ... as the 
informal snapshot indicates ... he 
sweats more "pressing" the heavy 
weights of academics than in P.T. . . . 
a firm believer in the future of aviation 
and already a skilled pilot, he hopes to 
obtain wings of silver sometime in the 
near future.

and his life is just that . . . everything 
is measured to the proper proportion

though he's developing a taste for a 
better type . . . daydreams about Katie

Somerset, Pennsylvania 

Pardon me, but do you all have a 
cigarette? . . . this well-known phrase 
followed by a beaming smile and dark 
wavy hair serves to notify that Robbie 
is here . . . Robbie is Scotch by blood 
and preference as can be seen if you 
him to quote Bobby Burns ... it is 
easier to get him started than to stop 
him . . . born in Florida, he migrated 
north to Peim State for a little education 
then back to Florida and then the 
USNA ... he leans toward golf and 
thinks spending Sunday afternoon on the 
course is better than eating . . . not a 
slash, he stands in the upper third of 
the class and will always get out of the 
sack to help a classmate.

East St. Louis, Illinois 

Chuck came to us from the Navy but 
calls East St. Louis home ... he has 
many interesting anecdotes of his Navy 
life and much of our time is spent en- 
larging upon some of his experiences 
until they bear little resemblance to the 
original . . . we will always maintain 
that, compared to Chuck, Casanova 
was a mere child . . . Chuck takes 
everything in his stride . . . indeed he 
is seldom ruffled at all . . . except 
possibly before a swimming test . . . 
Chuck's athletic prowess is confined to 
intramural sports and in these he can 
always be expected to pull more than 
his share . . . academics and Chuck 
are rarely at odds . . . for a good- 
natured, conscientious shipmate and 
loyal friend, we'll take Chuck any time. 

Port Huron, Michigan 

Know to most of his friends as Tony 
. . . was born in Detroit, Michigan, 
but his present residence is in Port 
Huron, Michigan, which lies about 60 
miles north of Detroit ... he does a 
little boxing and can usually be found, 
during the evening, in the lower gym, 
leading with his nose . . . if it is possi- 
ble, he intends to enter the Marine 
Corps upon graduation from the acad- 
emy . . . his studies and class standing 
are about average but he is gradually 
becoming 2.5 conscious ... if he does 
go to the "Corps," he will undoubtedly 
be a credit to it . . . and will un- 
doubtedly have a long and successful 
career as one of its officers. 

You never met anything like this before 
. . . takes an interest in everything 
as long as he can take an interest in the 
rack . . . from Tschaikovsky to Dizzy 
Gillespie, he goes vostorge over music, 
his hobby ... he will argue almost 
anything just for fun ... a man who 
couldn't tell a story without a hand, an 
arm, and five whole fingers ... a he- 
man with a passion for good scotch to 
take a load off his stomache . . . the 
only Russian student to be approached 
by Joe Stalin and be offered a sickle, 
hammer, and red paint (he got the stuff) 
. . . good-natured, helpful, smart . . . 
not very greasy . . . but a darn good 
guy to have around.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

"Smoke? impossible . . . they have a 
law . . ." Such is the quick retort one 
is certain to get from Lou whenever the 
Smog of Pittsburgh is mentioned . . . 
Lou claims Pittsburgh as his home and 
it is from there that he came to U.S.N. A. 
by way of Maritime School and N.A. 
P.S. . . . far above the average academ- 
ically . . . Lou's stars were never in 
doubt; for him all four years at Navy Tech 
were fruit . . . Batt football and plebe 
crew were supplemented by company 
sports and sailing . . . but Lou's chief 
claim to fame is the tenacious way he 
clung to his sack, defying all comers to 
pry him from the arms of Morpheus . . . 
never a Red Mike . . . Lou had no 
trouble with women ... he just took 
them one at a time.

If Dick's future be the logical result 
of his past, it can be nothing except a 
fabulous adventure ... In viewing the 
glamour which marks his history be 
careful to avoid the conclusion that his 
life is haphazard and irresponsible . . . 
it's not, . . . it's well engineered . . . 
he spent his formative years in Canada 
. . . his whirlwind career in the Cana- 
dian Army collapsed when the CO. of 
Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders dis- 
covered his most promising "Kiltie" 
was only fourteen years old ... as a 
Pennsylvanian, he knows more about 
Washington than any of his classmates

. . . with E.D.O. his goal and the maxi- 
mum of ability and ambition Dick will

A scholar is "Schaucks," but not an

Cross to come to Navy, Bill sacrificed 
the fruits of academic labor already won 
for a career in the service . . . has 
proved by his ambition and drive that 
the choice was a wise one ... it 
is difficult to predict a future for 
"Schaucks" . . . although it is rumored 
that he and Dr. Einstein have an agree- 
ment that prohibits each from encroach- 
ing on the other's chosen field . . . his 
excellence in so many fields of academic 
endeavor and his records of achievement 
to date mark Bill as the man to watch 
when '51 matures to flag rank.

Academics were his big headache . . . 
but he has finally reached one of his life's 
goals . . . graduation from USNA . . . 
a cold-hearted northerner . . . that is, 
he has adjusted himself to having a per- 
ennial cold . . . easy-going, amiable, 
his countenance always possessing a 
smile . . . non-smoker, but likes a little 
Pennsylvania beer on occasion . . . any 
occasion ... a good intra-company ath- 
lete, a hair too light and a lick too small 
for varsity sports . . . loves to swim 
and has spent many an hour aiding his 
non-swimming friends to improve them- 
selves in that sport . . . cruise increased 
his desire for admission to the wardroom 
. . . now John is looking forward to 
joining the fleet and obtaining some 
foreign travel time.

Nobody had troubles like Stan had . . . 
yet no one could make you forget your 
own like Stan did . . . nimble wit, 
always seeing the funny side and bring- 
ing it out, he kept us in continual spasms 
of laughter . . . impulsive, he could 
always be counted on to do the unex- 
pected ... a wheel at military school, 
he was well equipped to take Navy in 
his stride . . . could be found in the 
fencing loft during the winter where 
he plied the epee for Navy . . . recog- 
nizable by the prominent nose, flushed 
face, and an early morning irritability 
. . . always dragged queens and ready 
to provide friends with same . . . wholly 
unselfish, well-liked, keen intellect, ma-

Harry failed to learn his lesson after a 
hitch in the Navy and a year of college, 
so he came on to Navy Tech . . . not 
crazy about Seamo, but he enjoyed 
his own boat every summer ... in the 
battle of wits, his quick quips always 
brought him out on top ... a bull 
book always sufficed for him in place of 
sleeping pills . . . would rather tinker 
with his cameras than books during 
study hours and he had more gouges 
on them than on skinny . . . kept a 
"Don't Touch" sign on his pipe rack 
and meant it . . . enjoyed female com- 
panionship and had his share of queens 
on the weekends . . . will probably end 
up as an airdale upon graduation.

One of the younger members of '51

. . . good at swapping tall stories . . .

Lorain was the Steel Center of the 
world . . . one of the "wine, women, 
and song boys" . . . always looking for 
a woman to drag ; has also been bricked 
. . . enjoys any kind of music except 
hillbilly which he says is not music . . . 
likes hunting and fishing . . . his atti- 
tude toward golf is "do or die;" it will 
probably be die but he still keeps trying

. . . but rarely receives a letter. Good 
Luck, Frank.

Chuck came reluctantly to the Academy 
by way of the Navy . . . the "Tiger," 
never forgetting the great outside world, 
enters readily in an argument against 
the system . . . Chuck claims with 
justice, "Give me a clarinet and I can 
murder and bury any song going" . . . 
the academic purge ended for Chuck 
when the foreign menace left him third 
class year . . . "Hand me the aspirins, 
I'm off to Dago class" . . . "Why 
memorize all that stuff; why do you

good for the profs . . . "It's all rela- 
tive" . . . "Such is life" ... all express 
his easy-going philosophy . . . Chuck 
approaches all things very coolly and 
logically, but with determination.

never one to back away from his share of 
work, Bill always had a helping hand in

Tony has gained the respect of his class-

his stern hand in handling fellow crimi-

roommate recorded his voice in an effort 
to cure him of "the language handicap" 
. . . he's succeeding . . . besides dic- 
tion, Charley took the regular Naval 
School course ... in the way of physi- 
cal exertion, he prefers Battalion wres- 
tling when not on the radiator . . . he's 
a Middy you could always see looking 
for seconds on dessert ... it wasn't 
long until he earned the name "Chuck"

From Cantrall, Illinois, where his father 
is the Chief-of-Police, Chief-of-the-Fire- 
Department, Mayor, and miner, conies 
"Ski" . . . quite the athlete in his 
high school days . . . engaged in basket- 
ball, baseball, and track . . . came to 
Navy via Great Lakes, Bikini, and 
NAPS . . . still enjoys spilling a yarn 
about the big boom . . . tried out for 
five Academy sports . . . after two 
days with each, he concluded, "They 
took up too much of my free time" 
. . . his good looks and cocked cap 
point him out in a crowd . . . his 
laughter and sarcastic wit make him 
enjoyable company ... "a good catch 
for the right gal" ... to put it into 
his own words . . . and he thinks he's

Newtonville, Massachusetts 

Through the help of Gramp, Dad and 
a few waves in Skully Square, Chuck 
took to the seas ... he was last seen 
rowing down the Charles River with 
"Navy or Bust" tattooed on his brain 
... he got here via London, Paris and 
the Henly Regatta . . . Charley was 
sometimes heard to say, "Geez! without 
my slide rule and Esquire calendar, 
I'd never have made it" . . . academics 
were never a real problem but sometimes 
after a real "Navy" day, he found that 
the only way to remain sane was to 
sleep if off . . . and as the Academy 
sinks slowly into the Severn, we'll say 
. . . "Here's to the best wife God ever 
made . . . next to a real one."

Came to the Naval Academy via NAPS 
with a Fleet appointment ... in spite 
of this previous Naval indoctrination 
he found it hard to appreciate the Execu- 
tive Department and "all those in 
authority" . . . Oscar is probably best 
known for his deals, successful and other- 
wise . . . his biggest one being the 
formation of a committee which pro- 
motes parties and dances for the Brigade 
during leave . . . his activities were 
numerous and varied ... at the table 
his "professional" questions were on 
subjects that ranged from jet aircraft

graduation he hopes to become a throttle 
jockey for the Air Force. . . .

year, he was runner-up in Brigade box- 
ing . . . his Academy white shirts were

an ape . . . people wonder about that 
hole in his head . . . he's not really 
lazy, just preserving his strength for old 
age . . . doted on grubbing cigarettes 
from the plebes across the hall, or any-

Duke and other colleges for the V-5 lad, 
but finally flight training . . he flew 
like the birdies . . . but another great 
decision, would he wait and get his 
longed for wings or go to that home of

Canton, Oklahoma 

From the plains of Oklahoma . . . where 
only a barbed wire fence keeps out the 
cold wind from Kansas . . . comes 
Rapid Robert . . . active in all sports 
while in high school, Rob came to U. S. 
N. A. where he soon learned that lessons 
were the things in vogue, and that they 
came first ... his interests in sports 
did not wane as he could always be 
counted on to know who played what, 
when, and what the score was . . . his 
ability for writing out our statements to 
the executive department was a life- 
saver to the whole company . . . 
women were just something to put up 
with until 7:00 Sunday evening . . . 
didn't drag too much . '. . "more fun to 
sleep or play 'B-ball' "... easy going, 
Rob will be remembered by the troops 
as one swell fellow and a good shipmate. 

Palos Verdes, California 

Here by the grace of God, Rainbridge, 
and the Navy Department ... a mid- 
shipman who has succeeded in frustrat- 
ing the Skinny Department, found plebe 
year fruit, and acquired enough of an 
admiration in Tecumseh as well as enough 
friends in Paris to pass a re-exam . . . 
used to use his weight on an oar . . . 
prefers to spend his spare time around a 
handball or tennis court . . . enjoys light 
reading, but gives the sack priority if 
he is not wanted by the Executive De- 
partment . . . true California kid, never- 
theless winters in Roston . . . such a 
tremendous liking for beans must classify 
him as a true Navy man . . . was wild 
about 2/c cruise . . . hopes Naval Avia- 
tion will still be in existence for the air- 
minded Ensigns of '51. 


"Avee'la, M. E." were the first English 
words he learned to recognize when he 
came to U.S.N. A. . . . from then on he 
would snap to attention and a Prussian 
"Yes, sir!" would indicate his readiness 
for action . . . never forgot those leisure 
hours spent under the shade of an octo- 
generian palm tree on the sandy shores 
of the Caribbean ... a lover of Spanish 
music, women and customs . . . always 
longed to be a bull fighter . . . but oh! 
strange paradox! ... he studied Rull 
for four years and considers himself 
lucky to have endured the fight so long 
. . . plenty of energy and natural ability 
to play soccer led him to join the plebe 
team . . . later joined the company 
team to give him a little time each day 
to take a nap.

Wa-hoo! . . . Buck Baird has hit the 
Naval Academy . . . Buck is from Ker- 
mit out in West Texas ... it was out 
there that Buck learned his "rocker bar 
B and lazy V's" ... in high school and 
at Texas Tech he gained sufficient tech- 
nical knowledge to enter Annapolis . . . 
easy-going, always ready to give the 
next guy a helping hand, fell into life at 
the Naval Academy rather easily . . . 
his unlimited supply of tall tales about 
"back home in Texas" always made use 
of the adjectives "bigger" and "better" 
. . . the fastest man on the draw since 
the days of Bill Cody is ready to give 
the Navy the best of Texas production.

A Marine in Sailor's clothing with hopes

one of the draggin'-est men in the class 
. . . not a savoir but not a bucket . . . 
for four years he worked, prayed, and 
argued to talk his wives into going into 
the Marines ... all to no avail . . . 
with his love for the Corps and natural 
ability he'll go a long way. 

Springfield, Missouri 

After a very short stay at Bullis Prep, 
Dick came to Navy via Southwest Mis- 
souri State College ... a cold, exact- 
ing, calculating young man . . . aca- 
demics were a trifling matter to Dick . . . 
usually was found "working out" lying 
in the rack catching the late scratches 
at Havre de Grace and Tropical Park 
. . . dribbling a basketball, coming in 
sometimes in steeplechase ... or score- 
keeping in volleyball . . . girls were just 
putty to "ole debonair Dick" ... all 
sorts of girls . . . factory workers, pop- 
corn girls, dime-store clerks, mill hands 
... all sorts . . . was destined at birth 
to fly . . . Dick is up there with the 
best of 'em, and he'll stay there until 
he's down here with the rest of us.

Clarksville, Arkansas 

From the home of the Alberta Peach 
via the regular Navy, Ralph slipped

thinks letter writing is a curse on man- 
kind . . . will never tire of Scheherazade

athletic contributions . . . nothing spec- 
tacular, but always holding up his end 
of the line . . . Barr has a habit of 
hounding his wives about Sunday sweep- 
down . . . usually ends up behind the 
broom himself . . . will endorse a few 
good practical jokes . . . even on him- 
self . . . thinks flying is the best form 
of duty and is anticipating plenty of 
hours jockeying a fighter around the sky 
... an Ozark lad with a big smile you'll 
be hearing more of as time goes by.

Baird, Texas 

Typical Texan without bow legs ... a 
frown which has all of the earmarks but 
doesn't quite make the grade ... a 
teller of unique stories of wine, women 
and woes of life in a dry country . . . 
intellectual prowess is astounding . . . 
but to hear him talk . . . "Pass 'e 
sugar, will ye?" or "How are ye, feller?" 
... a great high school athlete, he 
shelved his talent for sack time and novel 
reading . . . it's rumored that some of 
his idle moments were devoted to editing 
a private manuscript of short stories . . . 
very apt student of the teacher Exper- 
ience . . . after one brush with the 
academic board he refrained from such 
tactics . . . should go far in the service.

will tell you that he is Irish . . . with 
his album of Irish ballads and a person- 
ality full of shamrocks, Matt Breen 
truly fills the adage "As Irish as Patti's 
Pig" . . . St. Patrick is mighty proud of 
this "Mick" . . . but so is the God of 


old Tecumseh 

with his firm 

hand he has had his anxious moments 
trying to aid Matt, who gives quite a bit 
of importance to grinding out letters in 
football . . . but schooling is definitely 
not his downfall . . . his learning, like 
his physique and friendships, is on a rock 
solid foundation.

ress in Red's life because of his general 
distrust of them but he comes through

a year at U. C. L. A. behind him, acade-

time ... most of the afternoons you'll 
find Don out on the tennis courts or 
up in the lofts of MacDonough stringing 
rackets for the boys on the varsity tennis

Phoenix, Arizona 

From the far corners of the forty-eight 
we gathered ... it was from the fiery 
sands of Arizona that this tall blonde 
came to Navy for the long treak towards 
graduation ... an ability to conquer 
any task set before him is one of his 
great attributes . . . crew and football 
plus the intramurals were his extra- 
curricular achievements . . . academics 
never seemed to arouse his driving initia- 
tive . . . the "I believe in a firm plebe 
policy" theme has many times been dis- 
cussed . . . the room was great . . . 
many were the hours of chicanery en- 
joyed by all . . . upon graduation, 
whether it be line or Air Force for Reily, 
that service will get the best.

P.B., "Pablo", the sunshine boy from 
the expansive Indian and oil state of 
Okahoma, has blood of neither the 
Spanish clan nor the Cherokee tribe but 
reflects a congeniality and loyalty of both 
... a glowing personality has made 
him the popular pal of all . . . however 
his contagious friendliness changes into 
power and tenacity certain fall after- 
noons as he lugs the pigskin for those 
championship "mighty mites" . . . when 
it comes to "just plain living" the Okie 
gets most of his enjoyment from music, 
the great out-of-doors, and the com- 
panionship of one lovely lass ... in the 
future we see "wings Martin" conning 
one of Navy's finest sky machines from 
port to port . . . that's his goal . . .

free time . . . and us of those humorous 
anecdotes that had kept us laughing 
all year . . . never tiring . . . always on 
the go . . . his classmates not only liked 
him, but they held a deep admiration and 
respect for the "man from out west". . . . 

Stanley £ctg,e*te ^atffayzt 

Oakland, California 

A N.A.P.S. soph, Stan came to us by r 
way of the 19th fleet . . . Oakland's 
claim to fame was quickly grabbed up 
by the system . . . however from out 
of the darkness came the dawn and 
Stan's greatest gift ... here is one 
midshipman to whom O.A.O. means 
One and Only ... on the weekends, 
you don't see Stan, you see Stan and 
Pat . . . Stan's collection of jazz rec- 
ords is surpassed by none in Bancroft 
Hall . . . among his exploits is the 
dubious honor of being the only man 
to step off a chair onto a stack of collec- 
tors items one foot high ... a mixture 
of all his qualities produces a picture 
of a great guy.

Iquitos, Peru, South America 

Peru's contribution to the class of '51 
. . . around exam time he doubles for 
Tecumseh on the back terrace and makes 
his dragging money for the term . . . 
always slipping rhumba records into the 
stack on the phonograph ... a genuine 
Bull slash in class but the exams gener- 
ally got to him . . . Armie was a hot- 
shot soccer player on the company 
squad . . . Armando's time in the Peru- 
vian Naval Academy acquainted him 
with the system, so he was able to avoid 
too much contact with the Pap sheet 
. . . almost starved to death before 
finding out there were other dishes in 
the States besides hamburgers and hot- 
dogs . . . Armando has ambition and 
perseverance . . . the USN loses a good 
man to the Peruvian Navy. 

Coronado, California 

"Boor" has had many invitations from 
the Academic Board but as yet hasn't 
accepted . . . the medical board also 
wants to know what happened to those 
cute 20/20 blue eyes ... he just lets 
them fight to see which one will get him 
. . . the only serious moments for Bed 
John are spent in the examination rooms 
eeking out his 2.5's . . . each time he 
drags it's his new O.A.O. . . . and by 
the time the weekend is over they wind 
up hating each other . . . maybe some 
poor innocent girl will come along that 
will last more than a day and a half . . . 
a Navy Junior . . . claims Coronado, 
California, as his hometown . . . always 
remembered by everyone for his good 
clean soccer games. 

Alpine, Texas 

"Aw-w-w" ... a familiar sound when 
John is around . . . hails from Big 
Bend ... is a true Texan in every 
sense of the word ... a slow drawl 
. . . quiet . . . John came to Navy via 
"A and M" ... he has had a hard time 
with academics but hard work and an 
immunity to "clutching" pulled him 
through . . . will always lend a helping 
hand to a buddy . . . has a caustic 
tongue that licks out frequently but 
never maliciously . . . just enough tem- 
per to add fire to his character ... is 
like a bull in a china closet on a soccer 
field . . . John is an all-around good 
guy . . . still hasn't made up his mind 
about the Navy.

Dynamite comes in small packages . . . 
and Rick is small and consists mostly of 
dynamite . . . the kid with the endless 
endurance who never gives up if it is 
worth fighting for . . . good in almost 
everything he tries in the field of sports 
. . . "liberty" is his motto . . . never 
within the walls during a free moment . . . 
there must be something very important 
in Annapolis ... an ex-sailor . . . comes 
from a Navy family . . . and has the 
voice of a sailor ... if there is a song 
to be had, Rick is there with it . . . 
had a hard time realizing that Middy's 
pay is not adequate for Louisiana play 
boys . . . but graduated without too 
much discomfort. 

Paducah, Texas 

One of those few who can smile in the 
face of all circumstances, conditions, 
weather, fate, and even his own jokes 
. . . Robbie loves most to swim, eat, 
dive, camp, and make last-second forma- 
tion dashes . . . because of the limited 
amounts of sunshine encountered in the 
vicinity of Annapolis, he has put in four 
enclosed years on the flying rings as a 
member of the gym team . . . although 
he loves nearly all types of music, his 
appreciation for "Rop" extends only to 
that of Tschaikowsky and the Don 
Cossack Choir ... an ex-fleet man, he 
w r as . . . is . . . and will be wearing 
the blue for some time . . . Robbie's 
initiative, friendliness, and judgement 
are sure to bring him smooth sailing. 

San Diego, California 

Louie is a native Californian . . . has 
lived up to his father's prediction by 
making a monkey of himself and going 
out for gymnastics . . . succeeded in 
not going to one high school for more 
than one year . . . because of father's 
Navy occupation went to four different 
schools . . . after graduation from Gross- 
mont High School in San Diego served 
some time in the Navy and graduated 
from Radar Operators School ... fi- 
nally succeeded in passing exams to 
USNA with several appointments . . . 
a jack of all trades enjoying golf, swim- 
ming, boating and riding . . . likes 
poetry and philosophy and is a slight 
introvert . . . not too ambitious . . . 
hopes to get into Naval Aviation and 
later into the engineering phase of it.

The strangest story ever told . . . Reg, 
the son of a Mormon missionary and his 
Australian bride, spent the first eighteen 
years of his life in Melbourne . . . grad- 
uated from high school at sixteen and 
joined the RAAF . . . mustered out at 
war's end . . . traded his citizenship 
and joined U. S. Navy aboard the 
"Birmingham" in 1945, then to USNA 
via a fleet appointment and Bainbridge 
. . . settled down to life as a midship- 
man and summer time cowboy in the 
wilds of Utah ... a good natured but 
stubborn guy with many friends and few 
believers . . . academics no problem with 
Reg, but women are his nemesis . . . 
has threatened to resign many times but 
Reg will be an asset to Navy for many 
more years than he'll profess. 

San Francisco, California 

Out of the San Francisco smog stepped 
a gray flannel suit, suavely draped about 
the person of "Rug" ... as he made 
the big move of his life and joined the 
Stanford Indians . . . after a year of 
rugged life the young brave earned an 
appointment to Navy Tech ... so 
here is where we find our sea-going Sioux 
... a musician extraordinary ... a 
singer supreme ... a man of limitless 
ability and imagination . . . but his 
only love is subs . . . (discounting 
wine, women, song, and leave) . . . we 
all met Howie the same way . . . 
"Where is Steam today?" . . . answer 
-"How should I know, he is always 
squared anyway" . . . and he is. 

Ibarra, Ecuador 

We are sure that the Ecuadorian Naval 
Academy sent us its best midshipman 
in the person of Al Saenz . . . studies 
were fruit for him . . . Al made out at 
every mail call but he rated it . . . after 
all . . . during a study period he was 
either playing his Latin-American 
records, practicing the maracas, or an- 
swering letters . . . every weekend Al 
could be found out in town or in Smoke 
Hall dancing the Tango, Bolero, or 
Bhumba with his O.A.O. . . . always had 
a warm smile, a kind word, and a "cute 
joke," an asset in any company ... a 
whiz on the soccer field and a terrific 
man, you can't help liking him.

mules in ole Missouri through a two- 
year hitch in the Marines, he came to 
Navy to really top off his military 
career . . . when it came to dishing out 
sports, Mel tried them all, but could not 
find one he really liked so settled down 
with a deck of cards and a record of 
Semper Fidelis as extra-curricular ac-

Clyde "Tex" Welch . . . the Lone Star 
Texan from Sommerville who's Air 
Force bound . . . his tall tales and 
speeches about the glories and achieve-

attitude will be remembered . . . along 
with these humanistic qualities are his 
friendliness, his church activities, his 
good temper and his eternal willingness

Sherman, Texas 

Don is just naturally lazy, but also, 
very naturally intelligent . . . when- 
ever a party was rolling, Don would also 
be rolling in close proximity with it, 
accompanied by his most potent weapon, 
confusion . . . Don graduated from high 
school in 1943 and continued his educa- 
tion for a year at Texas University . . . 
the smell of the salt air took hold and 
Don joined the Merchant Marine for a 
year . . . after becoming interested in 
Naval life he entered Duke University 
as part of the V-5 training program 
. . . then a rock bounded off his hand- 
some skull and he decided to do things 
the hard way ... we could wish him 
lots of luck, but how can you? . . . 
a guy like him won't need it.

Raton, New Mexico 

A typical easy-going cowboy if there 
ever was one . . . came to us from New 
Mexico A. & M. with innumerable 
stories of the sage and an avid interest 
in aviation . . . his interest in sports is 
widespread, running from rowing to 
rodeo riding ... as far as the social 
life is concerned he combines Western 
casualness with phenomenal luck . . . 
loves to put out the "dope," bum or 
otherwise and many times through 
faulty guesses he receives a ribbing equal 
to none . . . Whistle at chow is a 
wonder . . . the chuck wagon instincts 
carry through and he stows the groceries 
quite well . . . his personal equipment 
isn't lacking in any respect but beware 
of a bull session unless you're vitally 
interested in animal husbandry. 

'Kent Suyeae Ti/fafte 

Goldfield, Iowa 

Kent comes from a small town in Iowa 
that goes by the name of Goldfield, 
although it should have been named 
"Whyteville" . . . Kent knows every- 
body in town . . . mainly because he is 
related to everyone . his mop of wiry 
red hair is quite regularly seen at the 
Naval Academy with some mighty cute 
gals . . . meets people easily and cap- 
italizes upon this ability to make many 
friends ... he is forever worrying his 
roommates with his singing . . . but 
fortunately he lets off excess vocal steam 
in the Glee Club . . . Kent works hard 
to keep his company up on top in its 
sports ... he will undoubtedly go far 
in the Navy. 

San Francisco, California 

Poor Al . . . lost to us early in second 
class year when he succombed to the 
charms of a California queen . . . through 
the courtesy of the U. S. Postal Service 
and with the aid of Alexander Graham 
Bell's great invention, Al surprised us 
all by becoming a betrothed man . . . 
another talent Al picked up on the West 
Coast was a par-busting prowess on the 
golf course . . . playing number two on 
the golf team as a youngster, Al has won 
his N . . . although golf is his forte and 
consumes most of his spare time, Al is 
equally adept on the tennis court and in 
most other sports . . . Al's ever-present 
wit and good nature leaves us with many 
pleasant memories. 


Baton Rouge, Louisiana 

Woody . . . everything he does, he does 
with all his might ... no slash . . . 
but no bucket either . . . when lie 
sleeps, it takes a radio, a formation bell, 
and four men to drag him out . . . can 
sleep anytime, any place, in any posi- 
tion ... he started fencing here at 
Navy . . . third class year found him 
number three sabre man . . . one of the 
best dancers at Goat Tech ... if he 
sees a new step he wants to learn it . . . 
he's had rhythm in his feet ever since 
he's had them ... as for dragging, 
he's a Red Mike ... he'd rather make 
airplanes ... he wants to see Navy 
life through a bird's eye . . . once your 
friend . . . your friend for life. 

San Francisco, California 

While many men let short stature cramp 
their activities and their ideas, "Wooz" 
took advantage of his to leave his mark 
on the Navy . . . performing with equal 
determination in a TBF turret during 
the war and the sternsheets of a racing 
shell on the Severn ... he wears an 
Air Medal and a varsity N as proofs that 
height is immaterial ... he came to 
us from the air . . . all indications point 
to his return ... no star man himself, 
he has shown us that a good sense of 
humor can offset a 2.0 .. . known 
throughout the Hall, he'll soon be known 
throughout the Navy as an officer who 
can get things done with a smile and 
light heart.

Albuquerque, New Mexico 

After high school and a year at NMMI 
Buzz came to Navy to pursue further 
his military career . . he is definitely 
a 30-year man . . . with his undying 
loyalty and his ability to get along, he 
has made a world of friends while at the 
Naval Academy . . . not a star man in 
academics since his outside interests 
take so much of his time . . . boxing, 
weight lifting and dragging occupy most 
of it . . . famous for being in the shower 
or just drying off when the formation 
bell rings ... he always makes it on 
time though . . . with a million-dollar 
smile and a pleasant word for you any 
time you meet him, Buzz has a full life 
ahead of him.

A Navy Junior . . . and one of those 
rare persons ... a native Californian . . . 
he claims Los Angeles as a home . . . 
spent most of his childhood moving 
around . . . Tom was another one of 
the boys that came in from the fleet via 
NAPS at Bainbridge . . . definitely not 
a "savoir," but he did all right . . . has 
one liking in particular . . . the sack 
. . . didn't believe in dragging . . . too 
much trouble . . . only midshipman in 
his class to have the original creases in 
his trousers when he graduated . . . 
figured exercise was for someone else 
. . . likes the Navy and will no doubt 
still be in the Navy thirty years from

Leaving the University of Minnesota, 
Andy joined the Navy and set sail for 
China . . . this modern Marco Polo 
found treasure in China in the forms of 
fungus in his ear and an appointment to 
the Naval Academy . . . under all of 
this we still find the smiling Swede 
happy and looking forward each Monday 
morning to "another week in which to 
excel" and at least one "liver and onion 
fast day" . . . Graduation will find the 
Swede in white service and sun glasses 
on his w r ay to Pensacola to get his 
wings and a cocker spaniel, with an 
eagerness to do well anything he starts 
. . . Andy is just the shipmate we're 
looking for on our first cruise to China.

"Deacon" came from a long line of clean- 
cut Norwegians deep in the Minnesota 
boondocks ... on his way, he stopped 
at Gustavus Adolphus where the extra 
curricular activities were too much for 
him, so on to Navy for a rest . . . 
liked his liberty, but he has been known 
to stay in for as much as a month before 
making his weekend sortie to Crabtown 
. . . stood high on the academic tree 
with little effort . . . but low on the 
conduct tree with less effort . . . not 
a Red Mike, but always had a soft spot 
for a little girl from home . . . doesn't 
know r whether he will stay in for thirty 
years or retire at sixty-five.

state in the Union . . . Wyoming . . . 
like the state he is rugged and good 
looking . . . loves swimming and is best 
as a breast stroker . . . his hobby is 
women and more women . . . you can 
tell his locker by the snapshots and 
pictures of women which he draws . . . 
quite an artist and once thought of 
studying art . . . can talk the shoes off 
of a Missouri mule and hasn't lost an 
argument yet . . . his extreme persever- 
ance and capacity for hard work should 
carry him far in the Navy . . . friendly 
as a Spaniel pup, but larger and better 
built ... his favorite is "Oh Bill, 
you're so schou and stark."'

Sam ... a former Staff Sergeant in the 
Army with over three years of service 
. . . most of which was spent in Japan 
... he is a symbol of jollity and 
friendliness produced in the rugged Lake 
Superior region of Minnesota ... he 
is well known for his executive ability 
and phenomenal speed and accuracy on 
the typewriter, qualities which have led 
him toward the top on the staff of the 
TRIDENT Magazine . . . the counselor of 
Plebes who is ever ready to give or lend 
a helping hand, advice, or gouges . . . 
Sam's room might be called the General 
Supply Store, for he is always providing 
band-aids, his typewriter, money, chow, 
and his services to all needy souls who 
should happen to require them. 

Emmett, Idaho 

From the hills of Idaho, Leland Emet 
Bolt came with a big smile . . . "Just

intricacies of the Navy . . . swimming

love was the Natatorium where he 
spent his happiest hours mastering the 
fundamentals of free style, side stroke 
. . . saddest moment when he was told 
that he was off of the sub squad . . . 
lovable Leland was never known to shy 
away from the opposite sex . . . un- 
daunted by two quick bricking parties 
in succession, he carried the record of 
always being the last man on the flying

him to places with amazing names like 
Funafuti, Banica, and Pavuvu ... at 
one time or another has been in about 
every service (except, of course, the 
Army) . . . roamed around the South 
Pacific for a couple of years and then 
tried a hitch in the Marine Corps . . . 
it seems to have done him some good 
. . . during Plebe year he established 
the Brigade record (it still stands) for 
cornersquaring and acquired the nick- 
name "Military Joe" . . . plans to go 
into aviation upon graduation ... to 
continue his varied service career. 


"Coop" came to Navy Tech very early 
in our Plebe Summer from Bobbinsdale, 
Minn., one of Minneapolis's suburbs 
... he is popular with his fellow class- 
mates and is noted for his constantly 
happy counterance . . . Coop's inter- 
ests are many but chiefly he is interested 
in good books (particularly histories) 
and is an avid admirer of classical 
music ... his interest in nature and 
birds made him one of those early 
Sunday morning risers that took excur- 
sions into the wilds of Maryland . . . 
this is a carry-over of his Eagle Scouting 
which he left behind when he gave up 
civilian life . . . there is no doubt that 
"Coop" will succeed out in the fleet 
... he will go a long way.

In many ways, Bob found the Academy 
different from the University of Nebraska 
... he wasn't totally unprepared for 
it, however . . . served in the Navy 
between his college days and his entrance 
into the "trade school" ... he brought 
many things with him from Nebraska 
. . . notably a hearty sense of humor 
and a midwestern stubbornness . . . 
which made him determined to master 
academics despite periodic setbacks . . . 
serious about his future and his women 
. . . spends a lot of time thinking about 
both ... a competitor who made his 
presence known in every contest . . . 
he has the ability to play hard and lose 
well, when losing is inevitable ... he 
is determined to make good in the fleet 
. . . we who have been associated with 
him are confident of his success.

EBCo Products Help Strengthen Our Defenses 

In the air and under the sea, products of Electric Boat Company are in the first line of our defense. 

Super-fast (670 m.p.h.) jet fighter planes, F-86 "Sabres", are being built for the Royal Canadian 
Air Force under license from North American Aviation, Inc., by Canadair Limited, EBCo's sub- 
sidiary in Canada. Great fleet-type submarines are being produced at our yards at Groton, 
Connecticut, and are in continual operation by the U. S. Navy's submarine service. 

At both the Canadair and Groton plants, expert designers and technicians are constantly at work 
to develop improved airplanes and subs to make our defenses stronger, our way of life secure.

Word from the Admirals . . . 

Says Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King: 

"I have been a member of the U. S. Naval Institute for almost 
fifty years. I would urge all hands of the Navy. Marine Corps, and 
Coast Guard to become members in order to keep in touch with the 
progress in any part of sea power." 

Says Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz: 

"In my own midshipman days it was the custom for the entire 
graduating class to become members of the Naval Institute before 
graduation. It is an excellent introduction to commissioned service 
which I hope is still pursued by the graduates of the Naval Academy 
and the N.R.O.T.C. universities and colleges." 

Says Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr.: 

"The need for every naval officer to be a well-founded, well-in- 
formed man is a vital one. There is no belter way to achieve this than 
via some such medium as the Naval Institute and the Naval Institute 

For over seventy-five years the United States Naval Institute 

has been a pioneer in Naval professional thought and scientific prog- 
ress. For over seventy-five years all of the Navy's great leaders and 
future leaders have been members and supporters of the Naval Insti- 
tute. You are now invited to full fellowship with them in the oldest 
of American professional military societies. 

Midshipmen and other commissioned officers of the U. S. Navy, 
Marine Corps, and Coast Guard are eligible to regular membership; 
their friends and relatives in the other services or in civilian life are 
eligible to associate membership. Membership dues are but $3.00 
per year, which brings with it without additional cost a full year's 
subscription to the United States Naval Institute Proceedings, a 144- 
page monthly magazine filled with unusual photographs and invalu- 
able professional articles and reviews.

The superior service life of BG, the 

Spark Plug of Dependability, over ordinary 

spark plugs — has always made it the most 

economical in the long run. The new 

Model RB 27 R reduces lead fouling to 

a minimum due to a ceramic nose shape 

designed to allow the gases to swirl and 

produce a scavenging action. The unique

New RCA electron tube "freezes" movements that occur, and are ended, in million ths of a second ! 

f/owib "see "a superfine s//ce ofirfmef 

Now scientists at RCA Laboratories 
work with slivers of time too infini- 
tesimal for most of us to imagine. 
Their new electron tube, the Graphe- 
chon, makes it possible. 

For instance, in atomic research, a 
burst of nuclear energy may flare up and 
vanish in a hundred-millionth of a sec- 
ond. The Graphechon tube oscillograph 
takes the pattern of this burst from an 
electronic circuit, recreates it in a slow 
motion image. Scientists may then ob- 

serve the pattern of the burst . . . meas- 
ure its energy and duration. 

With Graphechon we can watch fleeting 
phenomena which occur outside our con- 
trol. It is not only applied to nuclear re- 
search, but also to studies of electrical 
current ... or in new uses of radar and tele- 
vision. Like so many products of RCA re- 
search Graphechon widens man's horizons. 

RCA works in close co-operation with the 
military services of the United States, maintain- 
ing liaison for specific research in radio and 
electronics to help guarantee the nation's scien- 
tific preparedness and security. 

Research like that which gave us the 
Graphechon tube accounts for the 
superiority of RCA Victor's new 
1950 home television receivers.

It's likely you'll soon be one of the lucky lads assigned to a 
vessel whose copper, brass or copper nickel pipe lines are fitted 
with Silbraz* joints made with Walseal Fittings or Walseal 
Valves. If so, we know they'll increase your peace of mind 
because a Silbrazed system means a "one-piece" pipe line with 
no potential joint failures. 

Skippers who were shipmates with Silbraz joints during the 
war will tell you that when hell was poppin' on deck there was 
no need to worry about the Silbraz system below. Silbraz 
joints can't creep or pull apart under any condition of tempera- 
ture, pressure, shock, or vibration which the pipe itself can 
survive. Good luck!

Here is why Quonsets are so 

widely utilized by the Navy: 

■ They are packaged for easy handling and 
lowest possible shipping cube. 

■ Quonset's nailing groove permits the use of 
a variety of collateral materials to fit out 
the buildings for many uses. 

■ They require less material to cover any 
given area. 

■ They are easily and quickly erected with 
ordinary carpenter's tools. 

■ They are adaptable to all climatic 

■ Quonsets are non-combustible, rot-proof, 
termite-proof, require a minimum of 

the stian-steel 


The first Quonsets were Great Lakes Steel's 
answer to a need for buildings that could be 
mass-produced, shipped in crates, and erected 
on the spot in a matter of hours. Thousands 
of Quonsets dotted the Pacific outposts of our 
Navy before the end of the war and there is 
scarcely a Navy veteran today who does not 
remember well the job they did. 

The Quonset of today is a vastly improved 
building. It is being produced in several basic 
sizes to meet an infinite number of needs. 
And Great Lakes Steel is again supplying 
Quonsets in quantity for the Navy. Greatly 
enlarged and improved production facili- 
ties enable Great Lakes to produce more 
Quonsets than ever before.

What's U. S. Rubber doing to 
bridge the gap between hard and soft rubber? 


Washing machine parts, for- 
merly made of plastic and 
metal, now made of new ther- 
mosetting plastic, Enrup, which 
has higher abrasion resistance 
and is structurally stronger. 

The new "U.S." thermosetting plastic, Enrup, 
can be made flexible and elastic as soft rubber, 
or rigid as hard rubber. Enrup offers entirely 
new possibilities to design engineers. The wash- 
ing machine parts, shown above, are made of 
Enrup because its abrasion resistance and 
structural strength are greater than the com- 
bination of metal and plastic formerly used. 

Enrup can be made into almost any shape 
or form, simple or complex. It can be punched, 
sanded, sawed, nailed, bolted, molded and 
machined. Perhaps Enrup is just what you've 
been looking for to improve your product or 
your manufacturing operation. 

For more details, write to address below. 


Some of the products made of 
Enrup for leading manufactur- 
ers. The smallest items weigh 
as little as one-third of an 
ounce. Engineers often find 
Enrup cuts molding costs, per- 
mits operating economies hith- 
erto impossible.

t oTouchdownl 

The first team is coming in . . . via Fairchild 
Packet . . . and the Airborne Trooper is headed 
for a touchdown in the drop zone. 

He is carrying the ball now in an assault play 
that is the culmination of the most carefully- 
planned teamwork imaginable. 

For behind this hard-driving trooper are 
thousands of hours of training and practice and 
co-ordination with countless other well-trained 
experts: pilots, plane crews, ground technicians 

and a host of other U. S. Air Force and U. S. 
Army strategists and tacticians. 

Tracing the team members back even further 
than that, there are the engineers and designers 
who planned and created Fairchild's C-82 and 
its larger, more powerful sister ship, the CI- 1 19 
. . . transports that bring the Trooper to his goal. 

Together, they make a winning combination 
. . . resulting in successful touchdown after 
touchdown ... in the Air Age.

guided missiles using brain work for defense- 
provide protection against attacking enemy aircraft. 
Designed and "flight-proven" by Fairchild, this 
surface-to-air missile is another development 
geared to the requirements of our Armed Services. 

Homing on radar impulses reflected by attacking 
aircraft, these missiles improve in accuracy as 
they approach their objectives. 

Designed and built by the Fairchild Guided Missiles 
Division working closely with the Navy Bureau of 
Aeronautics and Naval Research Laboratories, 
this is an example of combining the practical and 
theoretical to obtain superior results.

For over fifty years. Mullins experts have been converting 
some of the most complex forgings and castings into metal 
stampings . . . from washing machine tubs to truck assemblies, 
from tractors to kitchen sinks. 

The result in every case has been lowered costs, faster produc- 
tion, lighter-weight products and refinement of product design. 

Even when it appears that there is no place for stampings in 
large-run parts . . . even when stampings are already used . . .

RIGH1 for the Merchant Marine . . . 


► For over 30 years the Sperry 
Gyro-Compass has provided many 
ships of the U. S. Navy and Merchant 
Marine with non-magnetic true- 
North indications. Today it is stand- 
ard equipment on two-thirds of the 
world's ocean-going vessels. 

► In merchant ships this versatile 
instrument controls a steering re- 
peater in the wheelhouse, as many 
bearing repeaters as required and a 
course recorder for logging the voy- 

age. A utomatic straight line steering is 
another advantage obtained through 
the Gyro-Compass in conjunction 
with the Sperry Gyro-Pilot. 

► For Navy ships, the Gyro-Com- 
pass, in addition to its valuable serv- 
ice as a navigational instrument, plays 

an important role in gunfire control. 

► The Gyro-Compass is one of 
many Sperry marine instruments that 
simplifies navigation and helps speed 
schedules. Every installation is 
backed by Sperry's world-wide 
service organization.

Just as the role of air power has 
become increasingly broadened 
and complicated, so has the design- 
ing of aircraft needed to fill that 
role. Today, aerial weapons engi- 
neering requires a teaming of 
specialists in skills unheard of a 
decade ago. And the newer radar, 
servo-mechanism, automatic con- 
trol, automatic computer and an- 
tenna experts are necessary com- 
ponents of the team that includes 
aerodynamicists, structural engi- 
neers and electrical, hydraulic, arma- 
ment and power plant specialists. 

Here at Martin, these men are all 
part of an engineering team that is 
designing aircraft as integrated air- 
borne systems . . . working with all 
three elements of airframe and 
power plant, electronic flight and 
navigational controls, and military 
armament and passenger facilities.

stepping out for the evening, and want 
to look like a million dollars— see to it 
that your shoes are shined. There's really 
no excuse for untidy-looking shoes. 
You'll find it pays to keep a supply of

Shinola's scientific combination of
